Another good win on the road.

By

A good team performance.

On a sunny but windy February Saturday afternoon, Gosforth made the journey south to face Darlington. Several morning withdrawals saw a re-jigged side face a Darlington side, who always prove a difficult team to beat on their own ground, which they now share with Darlington FC. The task facing Gos was soon very evident as the home team scored a converted try after only 5 minutes (7-0). On 16 minutes the hosts were to stretch their lead with a second converted try (14-0). This reverse seemed to stir up the visitors, who were to score a good try through centre, Andrew Camplejohn, which was converted by fly-half, Mark Anderson (14-7) on 20 minutes. This score stayed the same until half-time.
Five minutes into the second-half Mark Anderson was to stroke over a penalty closing the gap to 14-10. Things got even better for Gos as Ando managed to squeeze his way between several Darlo bodies (see photo above!) to score a try, which he converted himself to give Gos their first lead in the game by 14-17. The home team were not going to lie down easily and they took the lead back on 64 minutes through an unconverted try (19-17). Again Gos were to reply with a try out wide by Camplejohn following a storming, strong run. Ando was to convert very well to bring the score to 19-24 on 70 minutes. With ten minutes to go Gos went in search of a fourth bonus point try, but had to be satisfied with another Anderson penalty to leave the score at 19-27 on 76 mins. This was to be the final score after another spirited "team" effort by Gosforth, who came back strongly to beat a big, powerful Darlington side.
Next Saturday sees us back on the road south (this time the A19!) to play Sunderland, who lie just above us in the D&N2 League. Kick-off is 2.15pm.
